Some "flagship" firearms are obvious. When you think of the firearm manufacturer, you think of that gun first.
Colt has (had) the 1911.
Beretta has the 92fs.
Glock has the G17.

What makes a particular firearm the flagship? Does it have to be the first? Or is it simply their most popular? What are the other gun companies' flagship firearms, in your opinion?

SIG = P226? or the P220?

Smith and Wesson?
Winchester?
Remington?

I don't believe they make the PPK any more. I think it was shut down a couple of years ago.

Remington 700.

Winchester 94.

Savage 99.

Ruger Mark II. And the 10/22.

Colt 45. Both the SAA and 1911, now that I think about it.

I guess N-frame Smith and Wessons, but that just might be me, because I love N-frame Smith and Wessons.

Mauser 98.

I can't think of any more at the moment, but I am sure I will as I read your entries!

All Barrett .50 cals. I guess the M 82A1 is the flagship. They are going to part of the next big gun control battle. .50s were banned in California, and it worked. Now VPC and the Brady Bunch are trying to get them banned federally. They are tryign to make the Barrett rifle symbolize terrorism.
